About Snowshoe Mountain
Snowshoe Mountain, located in Pocahontas County, WV, is the largest winter resort area in the mid-Atlantic, and allows you to explore three faces of the mountain with just one lift ticket.
The Snowshoe Basin offers a little something for everyone. Experts can enjoy bomber runs like Widowmaker, Choker, and Knot Bumper. Intermediates will enjoy great cruiser runs like Skipjack, Spruce Glades, and Gandy Dancer. And for first timers, the Basin area offers great learning terrain like the Flume Trail system. Whatever your preference, you'll find the perfect trail for you in the Snowshoe Basin area.
The Ruckus Ridge Adventure Park at the Silver Creek area offers something for everyone in your family from the tamest to the most fearless member. With night skiing, a five-lane tubing hill, Kids World, and the Mountaineer Terrain Park featuring a 300' half pipe and plenty of rails and kickers, the Ruckus Ridge Adventure Park is designed with one thing in mind... FUN!!!
And for those of you up for the challenge, the Western Territory, with 1500' of steeps to conquer, is where adrenaline junkies head to get their fix. With the legendary Cupp Run, designed by Olympian Jean Claude Kily, and Shay's Revenge, with steeps of 52% and "mountain size" moguls, even the most hardcore skiers and snowboarders have to take notice of these two beasts.
Snowshoe's terrain extends far beyond the slopes. With 11,000-acres nestled nearly a mile high in the Allegheny Mountains, the adventures are endless and the experiences are unforgettable. Our backcountry trails and spectacular scenery are unmatched anywhere in the East. If you're adventurous, strap on some snowshoes or cross-country skis for access into a snowy solitude. Or, hop on a snowmobile or horse drawn sleigh for a unique perspective of our mountain.
